    Course Description

    This course prepares students for fieldwork in the global public health arena. There is a strong emphasis on public health issues in developing countries and those that transcend geopolitical borders such as environmental change and terrorism.

  3. Justification

    A. Please briefly explain why it is necessary and/or desirable to add this course.

    B. What is the need or demand for this course? (Indicate if this course is part of a required sequence in the major.) What other programs would this course service?

    After having taught the course for three years it has been shown that the Epi-info software should be a tool used in analyzing data in this course. Students begin to learn data entry and analysis using Epi-Info in PHC 6112 (Global Health Assessment Strategies). The change of this course from two credits to three credits will add instruction time so students can apply their knowledge of Epi-Info in practical field studies.

    C. Has this course been offered as Selected Topics/Experimental Topics course? If yes, how many times?

    D. What qualifications for training and/or experience are necessary to teach this course? (List minimum qualifications for the instructor.)
